  • Single Player ONLY. No multi-player

    Fun game to pass time. If you like games that are strategic you will like this game. The graphics have been upgraded for Series X which is nice. If you're a gears fan you will love it. If you have never played gears it might not be your cup of tea. I initially got it so that I could play it online with friends but after I got it I realized this game is meant for you to play by yourself. So that is kind of bad thing is that you go through all of the missions with multiple characters but you control them all. So if you're looking to buy this to play with someone don't because it's not made that way.

  • if you liked XCOM then you're going to like this
    Verified BuyerReviewed by ElDude13 - December 6, 2020

    people are wining and complaining that this game is too hard! its too difficult!. well they havent clearly played the XCOM game. these games are as challenging as they come. these will put your patience and your planing to the test! dont be expecting full on gears of war warfare, this is not that. this is a turn based shooting/planning. i forgot what they're called. but yes it is hard to dominate at first, but the more you play the better gear you get the easier it comes for you. its around 40+ hours to finish so i think it is worth the money

  • Best Gears Game Ever!!
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Leandro - January 13, 2021

    This is the biggest surprise of the year for me. I could not imagine the very first Gears Tactics game released would become one of the best games in the genre. There is nothing negative to say about this game, the story is great, characters are great and most important of all gameplay is excellent. I already finished the story but I just can't put it down, and since the rewards for completing missions post campaign are higher I just keep on playing. The gameplay loop is very addictive and satisfying.

  • Good strategy game
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Dane - January 15, 2021

    The story for this game so far is not bad. The gameplay mechanics ar unlike any other gears game but they are not bad. If you like strategy games, I would recommend this game but if you buy this expecting it to play like normal gears, I would say wait for the next installment in the franchise. Besides, that the story, graphics, and mechanics all look really good. I would have liked to have seen a Halo Wars type of strategy game set in the Gears universe but, I appreciate the gamble they took here.

  • Don't Bother This Game is 100% Awful!!!
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Creative1492 - November 11, 2020

    This game is so bad I will be returning this game. The game play is slow and cumbersome. Turn based Campaign Mode is...it's ridiculous. The map is hard to view, and uses "field of view" so you don't really see the whole area. Also, the seal and the packaging on the game case plastic were cut in different places. The disk itself was not damaged. A very disappointing from a series of great games, what are you thinking Xbox???
